Mother: Anna Christensen birth place Demark age 23

Her maiden name differs from the Gunderson you mention.

Soren Udbye
Dear Oluf: I would venture a serious guess that the Soren you mention and the one buried at Oak Hill Cemetery are one and the same: I was able to do some research for you and this is what I have found:
Soren Immigrated to the US from Canada in June 1910. The immigration card states:
Soren Borup Udbye born in Denmark, father, Christian Udbye both of Horby Perabro [I am sure this is incorrect, but you can probably tell what it means]. Last residence was Horby Denmark. Destination Minnesota

1920 census he is in Richfield, Mn. and it says he is married but no wife is found in the household for him

1930 Census: He is still in Richfield, Mn. head of household and a dairy farmer. No wife and he declares he is divorced. A family by the name of Benedict lives with him and they are listed as servants: they are, , Emma, Charles, Irene, Justen [2 of these are children], and the mother of Emma who is Antonette Peschke.

He registered for the draft on June 5, 1917 which was mandatory for all men in the U.S. even if they were too old to serve. He declares he is married and has three children and he is in Richfield, Mn.

Legal birth date is listed as April 27, 1888.

Please contact me at
at my personal email for any comments or questions. I would be interested to know if in fact this is who you were looking for. Glad to be able to send this information to you!
